Measurement of progesterone during estrous cycle is useful for reproductive management of dairy industry. The ability to detect progesterone in bovine serum and milk could allow estrus confirmation before artificial insemination, pregnancy exclusion diagnosis and ovarian activities determination.
BIOTEC research team has developed competitive ELISA for progesterone detection in bovine serum and milk. The test utilizes monoclonal antibodies that react specifically with progesterone but not with other steroid hormones. The detection limits of the assay for detection of progesterone in bovine serum and milk are 0.005 and 1.97 ng/ml, respectively.
